Weekend reading: Here’s one we made earlier

What caught my eye this week. R ummaging around to select an old post from the Monevator ‘archive-ator’ each week can be bittersweet.

But a compensation for these memento mori moments is coming across those little nuggets that have aged rather better than me.

One such popular tool used by many developers, YouTube-DL, has been removed from GitHub for the present after an RIAA threat, as noted by Freedom of the Press Foundation’s Parker...

What Glen Keane Carried With Him From Disney, and From Life, for His Feature Directorial Debut ‘Over the Moon’ [Interview]

“I never do this,” Glen Keane muses as he swivels his laptop around his office at Netflix, filled with stacks of drawings and doodles — half thought-out ideas that the legendary animator had while working on his feature directorial debut Over the Moon. Through the grainy Zoom video screen I can see reams of sheets that are hung around the room. Some of them storyboards that Keane has drawn for Over the Moon (“I drew more for this movie than I did for The Little Mermaid,” he remarks dryly), othe...

I remember sitting in a class about this stuff 15 years ago and it was already well-understood that the internet, as used by individuals back then...
